ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y.--- Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente announced on Sunday that Oneida County will be suspending vaccine operation on Thursday, Jan. 21 due to an inadequate number of vaccines. This includes sites at MVCC and Griffiss.

The county expects to administer the last of the first doses from their current shipment on Wednesday, Jan. 20. This will not affect second doses for those who already had their first.

The county currently has 575 appointments booked for Sunday, Jan. 17 and Monday, Jan. 18, that are not affected.  Appointments for Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan. 19 and 20, will open up at ocgov.net in the next day or two. They are expected to go fast. Once they do, the county will be done booking COVID vaccine appointments until they receive more doses from the state. 

County Executive Picente says the county currently has the ability to administer 500 doses a day. He says next week's allotement, scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, Jan. 19, consists of 500 doses. Picente says the county-run POD sites have been running smoothly, and that the problem is that the state is sending an insufficient number of doses. 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been calling on the federal government to increase its vaccine distribution to states. 

Picente says as soon as the state sends the county more doses, the county will begin booking appointments again.
